Environmental protection and climate action strategies are at the heart of the Paris 2024 project, in line with the agreement signed by almost 200 countries during the COP21
in 2016. The eco-friendly and sustainable commitment to the Olympic Games will continue to place Paris as a global leader in environmental initiatives and at the forefront of the fight against climate change. In 2016 Paris was crowned by the WWF
as a model for climate action and won the prestigious C40 Cities
Award for its innovation in sustainability.
The Olympic Village will be a model of sustainable development through low-carbon eco-friendly buildings, the 100% use of renewable energies and the enforcement of a zero-waste policy. A fleet of zero-emission vehicles will run through the village throughout the competition.
The impact of visitors and spectators will represent more than 40% of the carbon footprint reductions thanks to a clean transport policy which includes the innovations of the RATP, official sponsor of Paris 2024.
“ Through our compact Games concept and innovative use of eco-friendly transport and infrastructure solutions, we are creating a blueprint for responsible event hosting and sustainable urban development, which we hope to share with the world. " declared Tony Estanguet, Paris 2024 Co-Chair, IOC
Member and triple Olympic Champion.
